May's specific complaints include an assertion that "We Can't Stop" has a "substantially similar hook" to "We Run Things".
Flourgon's real name is Michael May.
The suit claims Miley's lyrics "We run things / Things don't run we" were adapted from May's song "We Run Things" which contains the line "We run things / Things no run we".
In the suit, Flourgon argued that Miley Cyrus undergo some drastic changes in "her style of dress and personal vocalizations to reflect the grittiness, aggression, and sultriness associated with US-based hip-hop, R&B, urban and Caribbean music". They specifically point to similarities between Cyrus's refrain of "We run things / Things don't run we" and May's lyrics: "We run things / Things no run we".
Now: "We Run Things", which is a great song, sounds absolutely nothing like "We Can't Stop", which is not.
May said he sought to protect his work a year ago with the U.S. Copyright Office, and in November won "formal copyright protection" for all musical arrangements in "We Run Things".
Representatives for both Miley and Sony are yet to respond to their request for comment.
The former "Voice" judge's track was a massive success upon its release in 2013, and charted in more than a dozen countries, peaking at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the U.S. May also is aiming to halt performance and distribution of "We Can't Stop", and seeking a trial by jury for the case.
The pop starlet has faced accusations in the past of appropriating black culture, especially when she twerked her behind against singer Robin Thicke at the MTV Video Music Awards in 2013.
